The script didn't use the channel of SSH-agent for GPG-Agent, since it
doesn't work for me. Currently, it connect the original channel of
GPG-Agent, and communicates with "KEYINFO", "READKEY", "SIGKEY",
"SETHASH", and "PKSIGN" commands.
This is a bug report SSH-agent channel doesn't work on Windows.
(1) fopen with "wx" seems not to be supported on Windows
At first, I didn't have the file "sshcontrol". It failed at
Then, I created an empty file.
(2) When I sent a request of SSH2 REQUEST IDENTITIES, it failed. The
output of log of GPG-Agent is like this:
2013-01-18 14:56:55 gpg-agent ssh request handler for request_identities (11) ready
2013-01-18 14:56:55 gpg-agent sending ssh response of length 311
2013-01-18 14:56:55 gpg-agent sending ssh error response
I don't know what's happened here.
Perhaps, nobody uses SSH-agent feature.

IIUC, OpenSSH on Windows uses Unix Socket Emulation on Cygwin. I
looked through the code of Cygwin, and I realized that the way to
implement Unix Socket Emulation is mostly same as GnuPG, but differs a
bit. I think that it is good to run GnuPG's SSH-agent feature as
compatible as OpenSSH on Windows (plus Pageant IPC).
